Update from Gokyo

We are just about to depart Gokyo and discovered an internet Facility.
 So a quick update for the blog.

The fast group made it over Renjo La in snow and mist yesterday to
meet the scenic group here in Gokyo (4,800m).   This morning most of
group climbed Gokyo Ri (5,360m).  There was snow on the ground here in
the village but it melted quickly.  Acclimatisation is going well but
we all end up panting after walking up one floor of stairs to the
dinning room.

Weather is mixed and we are catching only glimpses of the fantastic views.
Should be several good blogs from Dingboche in three days time.

9 of us are heading over the Cho la tomorrow if the wether permits.
The remainder have set off back down the valley, from where they will
slowly head up towards Everest base camp.
